With these assumptions, Ackoff argues that these assumptions are in most cases not justified cases, and often lead to major deficiencies in the resulting systems, i. The Ackoff Assumptions are that:
Submitted manuscript must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. All submissions will go through centralized database for classification and internal administration purposes.
Once classified, papers will be directed to the appropriate Editor. All submissions are read by at least one of the Editors. Every effort is made to judge the merits of manuscripts.
Editor will refer the manuscript to external reviewers in a full double-blind peer review process and will send a summary of review back to the author s. Editors have full authority to make one of the following decisions: An invitation to accept with major revision does not imply a promise of subsequent publication, however, it is an indication of a positive reaction from reviewers and there is a possibility of publication.
Editors may take note of comments and advice made by reviewers that are not intended to be shared with authors.
The main body of the paper can include titles and subtitles followed by discussion to address: Paragraphs are separated by a separate line.
Figures and Tables Include figures and tables within the body of your paper. This will cause the figure to be distorted during formatting and production.
You have to use a drawing tool and import the figure to word. Figures titles should be under the figure. Table title should be above the table. This is the sole responsibility of the author s. Acknowledgment Include any acknowledgement right before the references section if applicable Referencing published research within text References to previously published research studies must in Harvard style.
Author s should make every effort to ensure completeness, accuracy and consistency of each reference. References to previously published research studies must in Harvard style. References should be arranged alphabetically without numbers. Keep one black line between each two references.Case Any Company, Inc.

INTRODUCTION: Management Information Systems (MIS) is a field of science that studies on (1) how better we can manage technologies (2) how better we can design information systems, in order to enhance a firm's effectiveness, efficiency and.
The paper seeks to contrast the roles that have been claimed on behalf of accounting with the ways in which accounting functions in practice. It starts by examining the context in which rationales for practice are articulated and the adequacy of such claims.
Knowledge Management and Information Science domains. Although references to the DIKW hierarchy were made by both Zeleny () and Ackoff () in the Knowledge Management domain, the closest reference to T.S. Eliot’s original hinting appeared in a Futurist article by Cleveland ().
To overcome these assumptions and the deficiencies which result from them, a management information system should be imbedded in a management control system.
A procedure for designing such a system is proposed and an example is given of the type of control system which it produces. Synthesis (thinking about systems) involves 3 steps: 1) what is this system of which this is a part of; 2) understanding the behavior of the containing whole; 3) identify the role of function of the system in question within the containing system.
Every system is defined by its role in the larger system.
